    Vancouver Island 8 nights??

    Dottor has a break between jobs and wants an adventure. We like travelling together ...I have all these travel points built up and can pay for entirely on points so no cash flow hit. Thought I'd tap the knowledge of the riders. We can do a small SUV, flights and decent efficiency unit Travel...

    Austrian MotoGP crash.!!!!!

    Perhaps the worst crash I've seen and a couple of notable riders risked serious injury or death by inches. Was not sure where to post this.

    Gaspe run

    Looks like I can avoid New Brunswick and still do the Gaspe loop. 4,000 km - same as the Pickle Lake run but likely more interesting - less remote. 5369 Snowbird Ct to 5369 Snowbird Ct - just hoping for little rain ....that stretch up to Baie Como last time was miserable. 12 and raining and no...

    Pickle Lake run Friday June 26th

    Thought I would separate this out. I was concerned about fuel on 599 but here is a ride report. I'm pretty inclined to do this and leave Friday very early as well. I know I can do Sault Ste Marie in daylight without too much issue and there are a couple...

    Spring summer 2020

    Seems we are up for an early mix of both. Lovely out today but back to 29 the next couple of days. I see they made the one place at the Forks take awy their chairs and picnic tables :( A few bikes out. OPP are being brutal on [parking. Too many of them around here. Better when Hockley opens...

    Reliable bike for my kid returning to riding after illness

    Kenz stopped riding a few years back after we had some fun trips together to the states and to BC. He had several bikes from 14 on to when he stopped riding - he's 29 now...the last being a hopped up 2013 FZ8 he got for a steal brand new and then tweaked. We have all the gear and he -...

    Covid era motorcycle adventure options.

    Aside from planning trips in Canada I've been offsetting this lousy weather with exploring potential adventures. For about $2000 including flight and Vstrom rental Iceland seems accessible fpr a week to 10 days. $700 for the flight and there will be...

    Apr 25th riders voted with their wheels...time to ride.

    Damn have not seen so many bikes out.. Put in about half a touring day and am I sore. Still just the slightest chill in the air but beautiful. Hundreds of bikes River Road kind of interesting as closed off at one end so not much traffic and very free of sand and gravel = spirited pace.

    Chile ?

    We are part way through a long planned 5 weeks in Chile by car and have seen a reasonable number of distance touring riders Some more photos here. Couple of caveats. Altitude sickness is a thing ....this was taken at the geyser fields at 14,000'...

    E-bikes/ eScooters this the wild west?

    This may have been covered elsewhere. So my understanding is that e-Bikes/eScooters which seem to cover a wide range of vehicle choice are now legal today as far as the province is concerned. The article seems to concentrate on the small stand-on scooters but what about eBicycles and larger...
